I want to improve… what are the options?

In a conversation with a friend I said I enjoy climbing but it’s surprisingly hard work. He said ‘Yes, because you’re doing it wrong’. And he was right. A coaching session is a brilliant starting point to get some idea of where to start and some basics to practice and build on. Honestly, I’m amazing what a difference it makes. The Instructor was friendly, fun and informative. It was obvious he knew what he was talking about by the way he effortlessly glided up the walls when demonstrating. Very useful.
After a long time of top-rope climbing, my friends and I decided to do the Lead Climbing Intro to improve our climbing skills. We were taught the proper rules and techniques of lead climbing in 6 hours, spread over 2 hrs per week. We learnt a lot and can’t wait to start lead climbing on our own! Thank you Big Rock!
I go to Big Rock most weeks. There is something for everyone no matter how experienced or if it’s just for a fun trip out. A few weeks ago, I had a coaching session which was great. Somehow, when my instructor explained how to overcome a problem, it just all fell into place and I was left wondering why I did not think of that. I’m hoping to arrange more coaching sessions in the future, but no matter what, I’ll be going to the wall as often as I can.
I have just finished the Lead Climbing Intro. We all enjoyed it and learnt a lot more about the skills and techniques that we need to rely upon to stay safe. The instructor took us through the course, with clear instructions enabling us to understand, and then practise the skills that we needed to move on the next level. I would certainly recommend this course at Big Rock!
